Established in 2012 in the division of Mission and Identity, the Center for Catholic Faith and Culture (CCFC) is a steward for Duquesne's unique Catholic, Spiritan character and for Catholic intellectual tradition more broadly. The Center is an institutional space that hosts conversations on social justice issues, pedagogy, and the arts, as well as an agent for change in concert with internal and external stakeholders.
Mission, Vision and Core Values
Animated by Duquesne University's Spiritan heritage, our mission is to promote and advance the Catholic intellectual tradition across the entire spectrum of the University's pursuits. Through interdisciplinary research and collaborative problem-solving, our vision is to become a vital contributor to Catholic ideas, ideals and intellectual life. Our core values are academic excellence, inclusivity, collaboration, concern for marginalized persons, innovation and impact.
